    Female Leadership

    Join YWL for an exciting event on Female Leadership! Research shows that women have great natural leadership skills, styles, and approachesHowever habits learned in childhood can limit the full potential of women leaders and affect how they are viewed by others.  It may even stop women from taking leadership positions when offered.  During this seminar participants will discover their preferred personal styles, and discuss how and when to use them. Using exercises participants will explore how to develop their leadership strengths to become effective and inclusive leaders.

    This seminar is conducted by Delee Fromm, an author, psychologist, lawyer and YWL advisory board member. Her books include Advance Your Legal Career published by LexisNexis, Understanding Gender at Work and A Workbook for Understanding Gender at Work.

Prior to her appointment to the bench, Justice McLachlin practised law in Alberta and British Columbia and taught at the Faculty of Law at the University of British Columbia. Justice McLachlin was appointed to the Supreme Court of British Columbia in 1981 and elevated to the British Columbia Court of Appeal in 1985, where she was ultimately appointed Chief Justice. Justince McLachlin joined the Supreme Court of Canada in 1989 and was appointed Chief Justice in 2000. Click here to read her full bio.

In addition to supporting clients through litigation, Annamaria provides comprehensive and strategic advice related to criminal and regulatory law with a focus on Cannabis Act compliance. She is also an outspoken public advocate for cannabis decriminalization and frequently writes, lectures and speaks to the media on this topic.
